Hey Everyone...

 

I havn't posted in a while so I thought i would toss up some stuff I have been doing for a little scrutiny...have at it!

 

You have seen these before..my framing model....I just took a few suggestions and re rendered in 1.4.1

 

 

 

 

Here is a project I have been working on for a few weeks. Some freinds wanted me to design a floor to ceiling bookcase with desk for thier office. As usual I am still changing the design every other day..these are my lateset test renders..

Those are looking fantastic, I can see by the first one you have been eating many Ice-creams.... I just love the finished look of a framed model (mine took me forever, and believe it or not, I did a take off on it...spot on) The second wall unit render has a comfortable warm feel and the wood looks great. I see your picture and the one below it...do you also own a human?

Fella, Finally, we can see your architectural renderings. They are fantastic. Is that your room?

Thanks for the kind words guys..

Solo..you crack me up dude... I love the framing models too...I was actually considering modeling that in "O" scale basswood. I even started doing O scale elevations of all my walls in AutoCAD to use as build templates. Have you done any scale model building for clients or proposals?

 

Art..not my room but a friend of mine built that as a "bonus" room over the garage. The built ins on the sides of the dormer and the window seat were already there, I tried to match the wall unit to what he built already. I am working on a set of plans to go with the renders.

Model building...lol...I used to make a model for every building we built, I ended up with a 16' x 12' room filled with them, heck I must at this point have shares in foam board and Stanley knife. Last year I let the boys (my sons) build a scene for their train set hoping that they would create a fitting home for a few pieces of hard work...ended up i needed to make three more for their scene (station, bridge and stadium)...so yes I have modelled...want some?

That's awesome! I LOVE model building..that's what drew me to architecture back when I was younger. I could do that all day..in fact that would be my dream job...building models. I would build more, but display space is defiantly a problem..and since I bought a house, now I am building things in 1:1! I would love to do a train layout but I don't have the space for  it..and I could care less about the trains..I just want to build the structures and the scenery!

 

I guess with the advent of all this 3D and render software the scale model might go the way of the dinosaur and the 8 track...

 

I wonder how many other people on the board are still building models?

Nicely done. But allow me some critique.

I think your floor to ceiling element will look a lot nicer if you link it with the side element. Personally, I don't like the fact that your wall unit has the same height all the way to the end and almost touches the edge of the sloped ceiling.

That fourth part, should be lowered to the third shelve at least and united with an "L" shaped shelve to the existing recessed unit creating the ideal place for the desk, and bringing the eye to the inside of the space without any break. Of course this is just a suggestion and I'm sure you thought about it.

Keep up the good work and show us how it ended up.

Thanks Yaza..

I agree ...I think your idea would look allot better and use the space allot more efficiently..unfortunately the built ins are already there and I would have to rip one out to build that. He wanted me to design a wall unit with a desk to match what he had already built. I was trying to link the 2 pieces together but every idea I had involved blocking some of the built in or ripping it out. 

 

I think he wants to build this piece himself, but wanted me to do some drawings for him to shop around for prices. I don't think his construction methods will hold up with a big wall unit like this...so I hope he does get a shop to fabricate at least the carcass..then he can trim it the same way he did his built ins. Same thing with the desk. Its not that hard to build, but I don't think he has the tools or the skills to tackle that.
